You have to empty out the waste toner bottle... The bottle is a milky white plastic and I believe it is right under the fuser unit. It should slid out toward you. Carefully dump the toner out of the bottle into a plastic garbage bag and re install the bottle and you are done....

SOURCE: Used Toner Bottle Full Ricoh Aficio 1035P

The used toner is stored in the Transfer Belt assembly on the right door that you open to remove a jam. Remove one spring on each side and release the catch while gently lifting up on the belt and roller assembly. It swings 90 degrees up from the rest of the assembly. There are 6 screws that hold a cover on the lower assembly. remove it and dump the waste toner. *** VERY MESSY*** have a vac on hand. Not a shop vac unless you want toner clouds floating around the office. If the six screws aren't present, dump the toner out of the **** between the mylar-rubber blade and the lower assembly. once this is done, the message will clear.

You need to open an close the front cover a few times, this will turn the machine on and off and start the toner replenishment cycle. That should do it.

SOURCE: Used Toner Bottle Full Ricoh Aficio 1035P

The used toner bottle is not actually a bottle at all. Not sure what you emptied, but it sounds like the actual toner bottle itself. The waste toner is contained with in the transfer belt unit. When you open the right side cover, this is the unit that is attached to the door. It is a brown belt that provides transfer of the image to the drum and separates the paper from the drum. Remove this unit by locating the release levers on either side of the transfer unit (push both of them towards the machine). After removing, you will need to actually take the belt unit off of the transfer unit. To do this, remove the two tension springs on either side, and then take a small flat bladed scredriver and release the clips that hold it down (you will see when you get started). Once you get it off, you will see the long blade that actually scrapes the toner off the belt. Dump the waste toner out this end. You will need to shake it pretty hard. A better (and cleaner) option is to vaccum it out using the crevace tool on you vac. Just make sure you completely empty it. Now....do everything in reverse.

Hope this helps,
Chad

SOURCE: I have a aficio mp

The wast toner is placed next (next) to the first tray.
To reach there open the front door and you will see a screw (placed on top toward the main swith).
After unscrew you will be able to open a small door that hides the waste toner bottle.
Be careful because it is a little messy.
Good luke. If you need extra help reply to me

Our kyocera printer says WASTE TONER BOX FULL. what does it mean?


there is a waste toner collector, it is a clear plastic container that collects any toner that is not transferred to the paper. after a certain amount of time it needs to be replaced (or taken out and dump the toner) depending on the copier it uses weight of the container or a sensor to block the light if full. if dumping into a plastic garbage bag make sure it is not dark so the sensor can reset, otherwise it thinks it's still full. You will have to Google where your waste toner box is.

Waste Toner Error Message For Samsung CLP 550


Dr. P,
Printer will display "Waste Toner Tank Full/Not Installed" error message if the waste tank is full of toner or not installed.
  • Open the waste tank door and check for the waste toner tank.
  • If the tank is full or not intalled, install a new tank.

If you have user guide, it will show you how to install the waste toner tank.

Sometimes you will also get this error message if the Waste Toner sensor is covered with toner powders.
  1. Remove your waste tank and look for the black plastic on the right side after removing the waste tank.
  2. You sould find small openings on each side in the black casing.
  3. Use Q-tips or thin cotton object to clean the inside the small opening.
for user manual just click here:

If this solution works, please don't forget to rate it fixya

For any more question just ask me.

Thanks
Iqbal

My bizhub c25 waste toner was full so replaced and will not now reset.


The C25 stores toner in a waste toner container. On the front of that container there is rectangular clear window that fits into a sensor when installed into machine. The sensor passes a beam of light through that window. When the bottle is full there is toner inside that clear plastic window which stops the light from making it through the window and the machine will tell you the waste toner is full. Just dumping the container out will not clear that window and by putting it back in the machine you will get the same toner full message. If you are going to try to reuse that container you will have remove the black plastic cover that is glued to the container above the clear plastic. Then use something like a Qtip to clean all the toner off of that clear window(much easier and faster to just replace in with a new container). if you still get the waste toner full message after you install it then remove it and wipe off the sensor that the clear window sits in. This will clear the message and you can continue your copy job.

Changing waste container


The is no waste container on Phaser 6500. There is a "waste collection box" in every toner cartridge and the waste toner is discarded along with the empty cartridge. The is also a waste toner reservoir on the transfer belt and this one will be replaced along with the transfer belt.

If there is an error message saying, for example, "Waste Full Cyan Cartridge", it means the waste toner counter reached the replacement value for that color and you have to replace the corresponding cartridge. But the waste collection box is not really full.

Waste toner is almost full on Savin C9020



The bottom left portion of the display gave the error message:
Waste Toner Bottle 1 Almost Full. Please call service.


They were still able to print, however this message would not go away.


To Fix:


Power down the printer using the normal shutdown method.


Open the top front door.

Remove the cover directly below the 4 toner cartridges.



8_30_2012_7_28_27_pm.jpg

The removable cover below the toner cartridges is actually the Waste Toner Bottle.


Bring this to the dumpster.



There is a round, clear-plastic tab on the underside of the "bottle". Remove this.


8_30_2012_7_29_09_pm.jpg


Shake the bottle around over the dumpster. Continue until all the toner has been removed.


Push the clear plastic tab back in place. Wipe off all toner residue before putting it back into the printer.


Put the waste toner bottle back into place. Power on the Savin. Confirm the message no longer appears and that users are able to print.

Xerox 7120 waste toner error ...


The trick about cleaning out the waste toner container is you have to also swab out the clear plastic piece the optical sensor reads so the device knows the waste toner is full. Clean that out and you should be able to get more than a weeks usage out of the waste toner container.
Hope this helps.

This error message usually means that your waste toner storage is full and it has to be changed. If this is not done you will have issues with printing. Check your user manual and see where the waste toner container is and it will also give you numbers for reordering new container from manufacturers site. Hope this helps.

"Waste toner tank full"message won't clear


I had the same problem with my printer. On the back of the waste toner cartridge is a tab that sticks out. A photoelectric shine thru this tab to let you know when the cartridge is full. My photoelectric had gone out and was giving the same error message. I took my printer apart and cut the wires loose on each side of the photoelectric and shorted them together to complete the circuit. The only problem in doing this is you have to occasionally check the waste toner cartridge yourself to make sure it does not overfill.
